This is a very nice example of this pen which continues to be very popular with collectors and enthusiasts. The pen is in excellent condition throughout and the imprint on the barrel is clear and legible. The pen shows no signs of fading or discolouration and it is confidentlky described as being in excellent condition with only minor marks and scratches commensurate with age and use.
The cap is fitted with a solid 18ct cap ring which is fully hallmarked. The initials “BLC” and the date “16-7-38” are neatly engraved onto the cap ring. The filling mechanism is the leverless twist type and it has been fully serviced.
The 14ct gold Medium Flexible nib is in superb condition and writes beautifully.
